Two Bartlett roads closed for winter season due to concerns of ice buildup
BARTLETT — As the first winter-cold weather seeps into the Granite State air, state officials have closed Bear Notch Road and the top of Hurricane Mountain Road as a safety precaution.
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation decided to close the road on Wednesday morning after ice buildup on the roads, reports the Conway Daily Sun.
Bear Notch road connects Bartlett Village to the Kancamagus Highway. The 8-mile stretch will reopen in the spring thaw.
This is also the case with Mountain Road, which connects Bartlett to East Conway and Chatham.
The possible ice and inch of snow forecast for Thursday night were factors in the decision, the date of which varies from year to year with the weather.
